Earache

Earaches most often develop through an infection, perhaps following a cold or sinusitis for instance. Because infections can spread through into the middle or even inner ear with potentially serious complications, earaches should not be neglected. If an earache is associated with catarrh, this should be treated too. Do not put anything into the ear unless it has been examined to ensure that the eardrum is not perforated.

Apart from the nasty, nagging agony of ear-ache there may also be other symptoms including dizziness and deafness which can indicate too much wax in the eats.

Home remedies for Earache

Earache Treatment using Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Use hot compresses over the ear to draw the inflammation outwards, and hopefully help any pus that may be present to come out also. Two very good oils to use for earache relief are Chamomile and Lavender or a combination of both may be most effective.

Herbalism - herbal home remedies for Earache

Hot compresses are the most effective home treatment in earache.

Chamomile (Chamomilla recutita) may be used as an infusion for this purpose too. Taking garlic internally will help to reduce any catarrh and fight earache infection. If on proper examination the eardrum is not perforated, then take a clove of garlic crushed into 5 ml of olive oil, warmed to blood temperature and insert few few drops gently into the ear. This remedy works as an excellent local antibiotic in earache treatment.

Homeopathy and Earache treatment

As acute Earache remedies only, choose from the following:

BELLADONNA: for throbbing pains, with a flushed face, a lot of heat around the ear and perhaps a high temperature.

Hepar Sulph: for a very painful ear, very tender to touch, and which may be discharging offensive pus - this situation requires medical attention quite quickly so do not let it go on unchecked.

PULSATILLA: if there is a lot of thick, green catarrh present, and the earache and congestion is worse in hot rooms or stuffy atmospheres.

Earaches in Children

Earaches, especially in children need to be treated quickly as an infection within the middle ear can be both painful and damaging. Speedy natural home remedies can be very useful to avoid these problems, but get medical help if earache worsens or persists.

Naturopathy - Natural Home cure for Earache

Apart from all the local treatments for earache suggested above, follow the advice given for Catarrh, especially if there is a pattern of recurring earaches as prevention should be the primary aim.

Treatment for Earache By Home Remedy

Lemon juice or onion juice is beneficial in reducing earache when applied to the offending ear on a plug of cotton wool, either of these should stop any infection immediately.

Summer savory is useful herb that will help to relax and soothe the victim of earache whilst basil tea will also relieve congestion and calm the spirit. The leaves of basil chewed fresh have doubled the potency.

Cut a twig from a hickory tree, hold over a stove until the sweet oil runs out. Use in ear or pour warm urine in the sore ear.

Earache does usually disappear quite quickly once it is treated but if it persists or keeps recurring over a period of time and it is best to see your doctor.
